Ijo Temple


Ijo temple

Ijo temple is located in the sub-village of Groyokan, Sambirejo village, Prambanan sub-district, Sleman district, Yogyakarta. This temple is standing on the west slope of a hill far from the busy residence, on the southern part of Ratu Boko.

The plain where the temple is located is about 0.8 hectares. Nevertheless, it is assumed that the complex is actually wider than area the government compensates. The assumption is based on the facts that when the north and east slopes of the temple was excavated by the local people, there were many ruins having connection with the temple.

This temple with the background of Hindu is built at about the tenth or eleventh centuries. The temple complex comprises the main temple, Apit and Perwara temples. The main temple that has been completely renovated yet, is facing west. There are standing in line three smaller temples in front of it and assumed to do worships for Brahma, Wishnu and Siva.
